I don’t think it is an accident that this season of waiting in my life is aligning with the season of Lent. It is a reminder to practice trust, faithfulness, and humility. It is a reminder that I need to work for what I want but that I am not the one in control. It is a reminder to enjoy the little things along the way, to be still, and to pay attention. These built in seasons of waiting are necessary for growth. Growth in strength and relationship and in faith. So I will keep working and waiting. Keep trusting and obeying. Keep enjoying the little things and soaking in this season of life.
“You’re like a jar of river water, all shaken up, and what you need is to sit still long enough so the sediment can settle and the water can become clear.” – Ruth Hayley Barton
